w3/max – Warehouse management without tradeoffs

With the standard WMS w3/max, all known warehouse structures can be managed. It allows to create storage areas and storage places which can be distributed among areas, zones and classes. w3/max is capable of handling multiple clients and allows several languages.

w3/max enables you to describe arbitrary organizational drains in the warehouse. Common put-away and picking-strategies are adjustable.

Apart from the articles' masterdata w3/max offers the possibility to add attributes individually, e.g. data about packaging hierarchies and packaging size, supply amounts, allocation of certain articles to certain storage places or information about necessary inventory checks during picking.

Among others, w3/max supports the following tasks of warehouse logistics:


  • announcement of deliveries
  • processing of the qualitative and quantitative goods check on arrival
  • arbitrary repacking of the incoming delivery units
  • identification of consignments
